Agreed! Keen eye, Vyeko! I would love to see this in B/W if you have the time. :-)

Thank you Susan and Marko. Susan this is great idea,I not think about that.Looks more dramatic now.

The B&W has a real Bates Motel feel to it. Nice shot! :thumbup:

Vyeko - the black and white looks really nice on this image. In post, I would do a little wizardry to highlight thechurch a little bit more and add a little more drama to the clouds. The color image is very nice too.

Thank you to all. I played little more and this is a third version.

Thank you to all. I played little more and this is a third version. The drama is coming forward! Very good! Now then, if you wish to fine to tune a wee bit more, dodge slightly the hillside to bring back some detail. This little adjustment will add to the image quite a bit. You are a trooper for trying new things. There is so much benefit to learning good PP. Best to do what you can in camera - but to make a WOW image, post is necessary - especially when using Camera Raw. One last thought, this image could also be quite effective with a little bit of Orton to it. Orton would give it an ethereal mood. Not necessary, just one more option.

Yes is possible to do that.I will see.Just now not have a time.About Orton I am not sure because of softness which is already present on last image.I know how to do it and maybe I will be surprised. :-)

three excellent versions of the image!

Thank you Bambi.Just trying to do something new.

Susan you have right.Looks much better to me now with Orton effect.

For me, #1 and #4 (especially #4). Beautiful valley & church, and angry sky makes this image stunning.

12-26-2011, 09:03 PM
Nice shot! I prefer #1. Why did you take the birds out of #2? Just curious.

Thank you.When working on B/W image I have thinking that is a sensor dust.Lately realize what I have done and decide to leave how it is.Good eye!
